Hedging Defeat

In some ways, this controversy has actually shaken me up a little bit and gotten me back into remembering that the odds of me getting elected have always been lower than some of the other conventional candidates

-Barack Obama

So, if he loses, it is because he never had a chance as a black man in white-supremacist America? Obama sounds more and more like his Pastor all the time. He says many of the same things, but does it much more civilly. But underneath the pretty words is still a trend of blaming the rest of the world, blaming "conventional candidates" and blaming a perceived rampant racism for his impending defeat.
